Why Avocado?

The addition of avocado transforms traditional deviled eggs into a seriously satisfying upgrade. Not only does it give the filling a gorgeous green hue, but it adds a luxurious creaminess and a healthy dose of good fats to this egg recipe. Trust me, you'll never go back to regular deviled eggs after trying this.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 8-10 minutes
Servings: 12

A variety of ingredients for making avocado deviled eggs are displayed on a light-colored wooden table. In the center is a halved avocado with a visible pit. Next to the avocado are six whole eggs. Other ingredients scattered around the table include a small bowl of sour cream, a halved lemon, a white container with a black cap, a small black pepper mill, and a small green container with a red lid. Fresh parsley sprigs and a red paprika powder shaker are positioned near the avocado half.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Parsley, for garnish
  • Paprika powder, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs: Start by getting those eggs hard-boiled. I like the instant pot method – it's super easy! Of course, you can boil eggs in a pot of water on the stovetop too. The most important thing is to submerge the cooked eggs in cold water afterward to stop them from overcooking.
  2. Avocado Prep: While your eggs cool, peel and mash your avocado in a mixing bowl.
  3. Make the Filling: Cut those hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise and scoop those yummy yolks into the bowl with the avocado. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and mash everything until it's beautifully combined.
  4. Assembly: Time to get fancy! Rinse out the egg whites and gently pat them dry. Spoon the avocado mixture into a piping bag (or even a plastic bag with the corner snipped off) and pipe that deliciousness right back into the white halves.
  5. Finishing Touches: Sprinkle with paprika and maybe add a little parsley sprig for an extra pop of color and freshness.

Tips and Tricks

  • Want these guacamole deviled eggs spicier? Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or dijon mustard for a kick.
  • No piping bag? Use a small spoon to fill the egg halves.
  • Make ahead: Prep the filling a day in advance and store it in an airtight container or cover with plastic wrap. Assemble just before serving.

FAQ

  • Can I make these ahead of time? Absolutely! You can prepare the avocado and egg yolk filling and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a day. Assemble the deviled eggs just before serving for the freshest presentation.
  • I don't have a piping bag. What else can I use? No worries! A small spoon works perfectly fine to fill the egg whites. You can also use a plastic bag with a small corner snipped off.
  • My avocados aren't ripe yet. What can I do? To speed up the ripening process, place the avocados in a paper bag with a banana or an apple. These fruits release ethylene gas which helps ripen the avocados faster.
  • Can I use something else instead of sour cream? Yes! Plain Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream. It adds a similar tang and creaminess.
  • I love spice! How can I kick up the flavor? Add a pinch of chili powder, a dash of your favorite hot sauce, or some finely diced jalapeño slices to the yolk mixture for some heat.
  • How do I get that perfect bright green color? Use fresh lime juice! It not only adds fantastic flavor but also helps preserve the vibrant green color of the avocado.
  • Can I turn this into avocado egg salad? Definitely! Simply mash the mixture a little less for a chunkier texture. It's delicious on sandwiches or crackers.
  • Is this recipe healthy? Yes! The avocado provides healthy fats, and the recipe is generally lower in calories than traditional deviled eggs. It makes a satisfying and nutritious appetizer.
